Many teens who attempt or die by suicide have a mental health condition, as a result, they have trouble coping with the stress of being a teen, such as dealing with rejection, failure, breakups, school difficulties and family turmoil. Unable to see the forest from the trees they can't turn their lives around — and that suicide is a permanent response, not a solution, to a temporary problem.
If you suspect that your teen might be thinking about suicide, talk to him or her immediately.
Don't be afraid to use the word "suicide" talking about suicide won't plant ideas in your teen's head.
Ask your teen to talk about his or her feelings and listen don't dismiss his or her problems.
Instead, reassure your teen of your love, remind your teen that he or she
can work through whatever is going on — and that you're willing to help.
Also, seek medical help for your teen, ask your teen's doctor to guide you.
Teens who are feeling suicidal usually need to see a psychiatrist or psychologist
experienced in diagnosing and treating children with mental health problems.
The doctor will want to get an accurate picture of what's going on from a variety
of sources, such as the teen, parents or guardians, other people close to the teen,
school reports, and previous medical or psychiatric evaluations.
